Pride of Britain Hotels – the collection of 50 luxury independently-owned British hotels – has announced that Dan Rose-Bristow, joint managing director of The Torridon, has been voted as its new chairman.
He is taking over the role from Kate Levin who has held the position for the last two years.
Rose-Bristow has gained recognition in the hospitality industry as a master innholder and also in his role at The Torridon, the only hotel in Scotland to win AA Scottish Hotel of the Year twice.
Rose-Bristow has been a board member of Pride of Britain Hotels for several years and more recently, has acted as vice-chairman.
With a self-imposed limit of 50 properties to “guarantee quality and exclusivity”, Pride of Britain Hotels’ membership continued to grow with four new hotels accepted during the last 12 months. Admission to the group is subject to each hotel successfully passing an anonymous overnight inspection and a ballot of the membership. All members adhere to strict guidelines.
Dan Rose-Bristow, chairman, Pride of Britain Hotels, said: “With over 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, I am looking forward to the challenge ahead. Pride of Britain Hotels is a wonderful collection of hotels and it is an exciting time to be more involved, particularly as we’re heading towards capacity at 50 members.”
Peter Hancock, chief executive of Pride of Britain Hotels, added: “We are delighted to welcome Dan Rose-Bristow as chairman. Dan has served on our non-executive board for several years and his experience in hospitality is perfectly suited to the role. I look forward to working closely with him over the next two years.”
